The role of a paramedic is vital, rewarding, and expanding – with increasing emphasis on clinical decision-making skills – offering you an ideal career if you thrive under pressure and want a varied role in medical care.

This innovative course, developed in partnership with the East of England Ambulance Service, will develop your clinical knowledge and confidence in simulated situations.

Spend around 50% of your time in supervised, supported practice, enabling you to experience the full 24-hour working pattern.

Your final year research project will enable you to progress to employment as a professional paramedic with a strong research base and potential for professional development.
